Pink City and Hawa Mahal

Pink City and Hawa Mahal

One of the most popular destinations in the world are the cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur, also known as the Golden Triangle of India.

The most colorful angle of this triangle is Jaipur, also known as the pink city. Due to the visit of the British Royal Family in 1853, Jaipur, the capital of the Rajasthan state, was painted in pink and its shades throughout. Since then, the city has been known as the Pink City.

If you are curious about the symbol of the Pink City, Jaipur, although the city has many remarkable structures, we would like to mention Hawa Mahal, the Palace of the Winds. Hawa Mahal (The Palace of the Winds), located in the city center, was built in 1799 for King Sawai Pratap Singh. 953 colorful  Rajput Dynasty architectural style arched windows of the dazzling palace are specially designed for harem women to watch the street. The façade of the building is in the form of the crown of the Vishnu god.

The windows, balconies and crown form give the building a magnificent view.

Hawa Mahal, which was painted in a pink-orange color for the visit of the royal family, deserves to be among the most popular buildings of the city. Pink City’s photos are incomplete without Hawa Mahal; those who visit the city will never return without taking a photograph of the structure, which keeps changing tones in the sunlight and mesmerizes its viewers.
